    Full Carbon Fiber Fat bike build with Luna BBSHD motor kit

    The Carbon Fiber Fat bike is done and it is amazing!

    It rides so much better than the cheap ass Mongoose test bike I built.

    Full carbon Fiber Fat frame, carbon fiber fork and carbon fiber wheel set.

    Here's the YouTube build video I did today.

      Will the carbon fiber bb hold up to the BBSHD cutting into it?

        Did you have any problem fitting the BBSHD motor into the bottom bracket? I also got a carbon frame from china and the bottom bracket was too thick to slide the BBSHD into it. Which manufacturer did you use on ALI Express?

          So far so good. No problems at all with the bike

            The BB on my frame was very thick also
            I had to shave just a tiny bit of aluminum off the motor casing with a Dremel rasp bit
            I'd say it was less than 1/16th of and inch and did not affect the motor in any way

            It slid right in snugly after that.

            If you try and slide the motor in, look on the motor casing and look for scuff marks where the case needs a bit of relief.

              I have done several upgrades to the carbon fatty
              I added a Manitou Mastodon fork and a Cane Creek Thudbuster seat post
              This pic does not show the Thudbuster
              I Love the fork and the Thudbuster
